|The Hurricane Pros... for the upper Texas Gulf Coast Region.
|Although they are not very common in our area, hurricanes are a reality that everyone within a hundred miles of the
coast should be prepared for. In a hurricane, there are at least three major threats to deal with - high winds, constant
rain, and flooding. There isn't much that we can do for the flooding, but the high winds and rain we can deal with. The
idea is to protect the openings of the home and preserve the "building's envelope". If a window or door is blown out, or
broken out by flying debris, the building's envelope is compromised. The severely high winds can quickly increase the
pressure inside the home forcing the ceiling up away from the walls. Once this structural point is weakened the walls
are left unsupported and may collapse. In less severe cases, the high winds and wind driven rain pouring into the home
for hours can cause thousands of dollars in damages and several weeks, if not months, of repairs.
We offer sales and installations of two innovative hurricane protection systems that are very easy to use and store, and
that are highly effective alternatives to plywood, rigid metal storm panels, and unsightly metal roll down shutters. We
have two fabric storm panel systems, Fabric Shield and Storm Catcher. These woven fabric panels are designed to
cover windows, doors, and other home openings, and are proven to protect against the destructive forces of
hurricanes. Even if the glass behind the fabric panels gets broken, the impact resistant fabric panels stay intact and
keep out the high winds and driving rains. These fabric storm panels are lightweight, translucent and or transparent,
easy to install and remove when needed, and even easier to store. These fabric based hurricane panel systems are so
easy to work with, they are ideal for those single women and the elderly who would otherwise be dependant on others.
We offer a complete installation package** for both fabric panel systems. Once the mounting hardware is
professionally installed, the panels can be put up in minutes. These systems become permanent, reusable storm
protection systems for the life of the home.
Both Fabric Shield and Storm Catcher have Florida Building Code approval, and are approved by the Texas
Department of Insurance's (TDI) Windstorm division as impact and wind borne debris protection systems for all areas
along the Texas Coast.
